Carmex Review and Giveaway


As a proud member of the Carmex Blog Squad I get to try out amazing products and let you know what I think. Sweet deal, huh? Well, I just received my latest mission... to give their Healing Cream and Healing Lotion a whirl.
Carmex could not have picked a better time to send these my way. Winter had arrived early in the north east, with a very unexpected snow storm that struck over the weekend. And with the cold weather comes dry skin.  So my fingers were aching for some relief after being out in the cold wind. But nothing compares to my husband who had to go out and cut up large tree branches that fell during the storm. He actually came in, complained about how his hands hurt, and asked for some Carmex.

The Carmex did the trick. What I love most about the Healing Cream and Healing Lotion is how incredibly soft they both feel. They go on so smooth and don't feel greasy as you rub it into your skin. And on the container it says "pleasant scent." This is very true. It's not a strong fragrance and doesn't smell girly (otherwise my husband wouldn't use it), but it does smell pleasant. I'm not sure how else to explain it... but it works for guys and gals!



My second favorite thing is how long it lasts. It really keeps your hands feeling soft and moist for hours! I often find myself moisturizing several times throughout the day with other moisturizers. With Carmex I find that I can use it in the morning and before bed and my hands still feel great.

My experience with kit that I received is extremely positive. My only complaint is that my husband keeps stealing them! I've never been disappointed in a Carmex product, and that trend continues. And here's the best part for you... Carmex is going to give one lucky reader the same kit I received!

There is no link that I can find for Guidecraft. Should that have been Carmex?

Hi Karen,
I'm sorry, I'm not sure I understand your question. I don't currently have a Guidecraft giveaway running. This link is for the Carmex giveaway.
Thanks!
